See the Libraries' COVID-19 page for the latest updates on library services.

Through Interlibrary Loan you may request materials not owned by the Penn Libraries as well as Penn Libraries materials currently in use or otherwise unavailable to borrow.  This includes materials that are checked out, non-circulating, on Reserve or missing.  Formats that can be requested include books and journals, electronic articles or book chapters, DVD's, Music CD's and microfilm or microfiche.

You will be notified by e-mail as soon as the material is received.  Articles and book chapters will be delivered electronically while physical items such as books or CD's will be available at the Circulation Desk of the library specified in the email. The length of the loan period is 12 weeks with no renewals and subject to recall by the lender.  Some material is restricted by the lender for use only within Penn Libraries.
